AllAboutSchoolLeavers has announced the winners of the Top 100 Employers for School & College Leavers Awards 2016-17, with BAM Nuttall coming in at number 94.

The job site, which aims to get school and college leavers into the labour market, hosted the event, which was sponsored by EY and supported by Laing O’Rourke in London City Hall. Employers received awards based on their apprenticeship programmes, school leaver programmes and sponsored degrees.

The top companies received awards for 29 categories including skills development, career progression, training and company culture. The suitability for these awards was established through surveys completed by apprentices and school leaver trainees from 100 UK organisations.

The event was supported by London's new mayor, Sadiq Khan, who commented: “I will be a Mayor who leads a new agenda for London, making sure young people and businesses get the skills they need to succeed. To achieve that, I am looking forward to working with the employers celebrated tonight to bring as many young people as possible into the London workforce, so our great city can continue to grow.”

Jack Denton, Director and Co-Founder of AllAboutSchoolLeavers.co.uk, says: “Our awards, solely based on the opinions of the people currently participating in these training programmes, help other young people see which areas employers are excelling in, and who offers them the best opportunities.

“By adding new industry specific categories we’re helping young people identify the best employers in the sectors they are most interested in.”
